influence, and zuckerberg is playing both size of the aisle, hosting a town hall for president obama and a fund-raiser for new jersey's republican governor chris christie. in addition to immigration, techies are taking on other issues close to their hearts, education and technology. jack dorsey co-founder of twitter and founder of square joined zuckerberg, bill gates and a host of others in a campaign that encourages schools to teach computer coding. now, jake, the reason they're starting with immigration is because it's moving through congress right now. it's a bipartisan push. and it affects their industry. >> but, erin, i interviewed jack dorsey a couple of weeks ago. i can't tell if these guys are liberal, if they're conservative. you see zuckerberg doing something for obama, something for republican governor christie. where are they in their politics >> from what -- from the people i've talked to, i don't think that they even know. and a lot of the republican organizers of this very thing are saying that a lot of these multimillionaire, mounta multibillionaire techies are just l
, chris, and thanks to you for tuning in. tonight's lead, finishing the job. president obama is back on u.s. soil fresh from his well-received trip to the middle east and today he jumped right back into the fight for second-term agenda, demanding that congress take action on immigration. >> we've taken real action from congress, bipartisan groups in the house and senate, working to tackle this challenge. i applaud them for that. we are making progress but we've got to finish the job because this issue is not new. emp pretty much knows what is broken. everybody knows how to fix it. we've all proposed solutions and we've got a lot of white papers and studies. we just at this point have got to work up the political courage to do what is required to be done. >> political courage. the president was talking about immigration and we're going to get into that a little later in the show. but he also could have been talking about another big issue where we're seeing momentum. gun control. today we learned the president will hold a series of campaign-style rallies, calling for tougher gun laws and n
reform. he is putting in $20 million into the effort. and the pro obama group will begin an aggressive online campaign pushing for immigration reform. joining me now, democratic strategist, chris kofinas. lois, let me start with you. i want to play what wayne lapierre played on "meet the press" in response to mayor bloomberg and his millions of dollars he is willing to put up in this battle. >> he is going to find out this is a country of the people, by the people and for the people. and he can't spend enough of his $27 billion to try to impose his will on the american public. they don't want him in their restaurants. they don't want him in their homes them don't want them telling them what food to eat. they sure don't want to say which firearms to own that and he can't buy america. >> interesting remarks for many reasons. he waves in this soda ban and some other things but basically paints bloomberg as daddy war bucks, trying to dole out his cash. we know the nra has its arsenal as well and has, too, shelled out millions of dollars in an effort. >> i think before this whole fight is o
announced last time. looks like she is in. hi, i'm chris matthews, welcome to the show. with us today, the "washington post" david ignatius and kathleen parker. helene cooper and michael crowley. first up, what does barack obama know what we don't know pledging to use american power against iran and getting more deeply involved in syria? the american mood when it comes to using force feels like 1915, the end of vietnam. after that war, reluctance to commit power abroad was called vietnam syndrome. then came desert storm in 1991 and the first george bush told us that the lightning victory there had banished vietnam wearyness. >> it's a proud day for america and by god, we have kicked the vietnam syndrome once and for all. chris: after the second george bush launched two long wars, many feel war wearyness like against vietnam. against the wearyness, how should we take this week's statements from this president on veryia and iran? >> we are clear that the use of chemical weapons against the syrian people would be a serious and tragic mistake and i will repeat, all options are on the tabl
